You Are Invited To Launch A UsuryFree Community Currency In Your Community?

You Are Invited To Launch A UsuryFree Community Currency In Your Community?
By Tom J. Kennedy

It is a recession  Or is it a depression? It certainly is an economic malaise and it seems to be deepening from a recession to a depression. The silver lining in this dark economic cloud is the simple fact that more and more consumers are now ready and willing to change the way they spend their money.

The expressions “usuryfree living” or “living usuryfree” are worthy ideal to pursue. These are simple but positive expressions of our intent to live without paying usury to creditors. It is also the intent of usuryfree creatives to shop locally, with small-to-medium sized retail businesses and/or home-based enterprises where the owner-entrepreneurs agree to accept a portion of any usuryfree community currency as a complement with our diminishing amounts of federal cash.

There is an article posted online titled “Life Without Usury.” Simply search for it at any search engine and read it. It is my conviction that this current generation can follow the lead of our ancestors and abolish usury (this time forever) and thereby usher in a new age of usuryfree living for everyone on this planet.

The forthcoming “Sixth Annual UsuryFree Day/Week” from November 13th to 19th, 2010 is an optimal time to launch a usuryfree community currency for your local community. There is ample time now to do the research and compile the relevant information needed to facilitate the launch of a usuryfree community currency for your local community.

Local trading or exchanging of products and/or services is encouraged and promoted during UsuryFree Week. Committed and potential usuryfree creatives gather each year during UsuryFree Week to share ideas and experiences and engage in networking at workshops and seminars. The pioneering usuryfree creatives are commonly present at these events and willingly share their resources, ideas and experiences with those who attend.

A usuryfree community currency promotes the idea of self-sufficiency within any local community. This self-sufficiency concept is otherwise defined as “bioregionalism” and its supporters advocate shopping locally to help re-build the spirit of community.

Any group or network that advocates using a usuryfree community currency likewise promotes the concept of “bioregionalism” because the participating traders are re-educated on the importance of buying products and/or services from local entrepreneurs instead of continuing to buy from the big box stores. In general, these giant, transnational, retail corporations are not likely to agree to accept any usuryfree community currency as partial payment for any negotiated trade or exchange because store policy will not permit the sales clerks to authorize such unique, loyalty transactions.

However, the local entrepreneur - who is owner of the business - is highly motivated to negotiate trades or exchanges with other participating traders who are seeking to use a usuryfree community currency as a complement with their diminishing amounts of federal cash.

Furthermore, the aware and awakened, local entrepreneur commonly views this innovative concept of trade or exchange as the optimal, customer loyalty program. In a manner, similar to the way that Canadian Tire money functions, accepting any usuryfree community currency for partial payment of any negotiated trade or exchange not only brings in new customers, but also motivates them to come back as a regular customer.

Indeed, local entrepreneurs like participating in a usuryfree community currency group or network because they know they can spend any usuryfree community currency that they accumulate with other traders in the group, thereby never losing any revenue for their innovative decision.

On the Tamworth Hour, paper note, it is written: “This usuryfree note entitles the bearer to receive one hour of basic labour or its negotiated value in real capital (goods or services). This note is backed by the honesty and integrity of time-traders who promise to deliver real capital to ‘Hour Third Market Network’ at a future date. Any time-trader is invited to accept it, then spend it. Time-traders agree to accept notes of usuryfree time currency at par from other time-traders known to them directly and/or indirectly.”

All usuryfree community currencies are commonly referred to as economic tools designed to re-build local economies. A thriving local economy does not require consumers to purchase more and more items. Instead, a local economy thrives when useful and practical products and/or services are exchanged by participating traders within any community.

For example, The UsuryFree Network accepts any usuryfree community currency for seminar or workshop admission as well as for various relevant resources (books, brochures, videos, DVD’s, selected health and wellness products etc.) thereby demonstrating how negotiated transactions can facilitate positive and mutually beneficial exchanges between local consumers.

UsuryFree Day is the perfect day to ponder our financial impact on our respective local community, but becoming and engaged and committed usuryfree creative is a worthy, longer-term commitment. Seminars and/or workshops exposing the design flaw of usury while promoting the usuryfree lifestyle will be scheduled during this “Sixth Annual UsuryFree Week.” If there is not yet an event planned for your community, you are hereby invited to take a leadership role and plan an event any day from November 13th to 19th, 2010.

You do not need to wait for UsuryFree Day/Week to launch a usuryfree community currency in your local community. You can do it NOW   In any case, you are invited to resolve to do your part to make the world a better place by commencing your self-imposed course of study by reviewing various, relevant resources to find out how you can experience the reality of usuryfree living in this incarnation.

For example, you can go to any search engine and type in any of the following words or phrases: usuryfree living; usuryfree community currency; usuryfree network, usuryfree lifestyle; usuryfree creatives; life without usury; money as debt; Tommy UsuryFree etc.
